Robotic Surgery Program at Boston Medical Center
In keeping with its promise of delivering exceptional care, Boston Medical Center (BMC) offers a comprehensive robotic-assisted surgery program. Using cutting-edge surgical technology in the form of the da VinciTM Surgical Robot, BMC surgeons are able to perform the smallest of incisions that result in less pain, a shorter hospital stay, and a faster return to normal daily activities for patients.
BMC has been at the forefront of offering minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgery for both routine and complex procedures:
The Robotic Surgery Program encompasses the following departments:
Safety and Training
BMC is dedicated to delivering the highest quality of safe, effective care. Robotic Surgery Program surgeons meet regularly to monitor clinical quality and patient safety of robotic-assisted procedures. BMC is the first hospital in Boston to have a dual console robot allowing two surgeons to operate at the same time. Additionally, the training simulator component of BMC’s newest robot ensures that participating surgeons have demonstrated measurable competence in the use of robotic technology.
BMC’s Robotic Surgery Program team of nurses and technicians are specially trained on robotic technology as well, including use of simulated training. Leaders of these teams join with participating surgeons in on-going clinical quality and safety monitoring processes.
